"Pre-College: Writing Workshop - The Personal Essay (Online)"
September 26-27, 2020
 

The Personal Essay is central to many types of applications - college, art school and internships. But how do you make yourself stand out? How do you articulate what makes you a good fit for the program you are applying for? Whether you are applying to Harvard, Penn State or an elite academy like PAFA, you will have to write an essay that talks about yourself, your goals and what drives you as a student. We will focus on writing a first draft of a personal essay to a college of your choice. Good personal essays use description and imagery to let the reader viscerally experience the story. Learn to write a personal essay that truly stands out from the crowd.
